United manager Rafa Benitez today welcomed Lejeune to the club.

“I would like to welcome Florian to Newcastle United," said Benitez.

"He is a player that has done very well this year in Spain. I have known about him for a while, since he began playing for Villarreal.

"He has progressed a lot as a player in the last few years, and I know he will give us something different at the back.

"He is good with both feet, he's big and he's good in the air also.

"If he settles well into English football, then I am sure he will be a success and will give us a lot of competition in this area.”
